Here's the NYTimes recipe you referred to. You've adapted it quite a bit.
Creamy Macaroni and Cheese Recipe - NYT Cooking
As I said...I really don't mean to offend...but do you ever have any just run-of-the-mill daily dinners that you'd care to share? Is this how you eat daily? Most, if not all
, of us would not buy and add artificial orange food dye, or use a meat grinder for cheese. We're only talking mac and cheese here.
I disagree: you obviously DO mean to be rude. As did the person earlier today who wrote something like: "I, I, me, me - do you ever get over yourself?" in response to a very easy lemon curd recipe I posted.
Do I ever have run-of-the-mill daily dinners that I care to share? Do you mean like the Mince 'n Champit Tatties and Bashed Neeps
I posted yesterday, which is close to the easiest recipe in the world? Did I miss some site requirement that I have to be a fan of Rachel Ray and her yummo can-openers? Or did you mean a simple, everyday recipe like the mac 'n cheese I just posted? It takes fifteen minutes to prep, can be kept oven-ready for days, which makes you look like some leisurely Martha-Stewart-genius. The meat grinder was already out, and worked great for grating the cheese, and I came up with the food-dye trick when my Canadian great-cousins started out dubious before inhaling it. For some reason those simple tips offend your sensibilities.
That said, I do not think that this public forum is an appropriate venue for hostile comments and personal attacks. If that is what you want to do, please message me privately. I've only been here a month, but the word "clique" keeps bubbling up into my mind. This indeed may be the wrong forum for me, but I'm not yet convinced.
I enjoy cooking, and sharing and learning techniques and recipes, is all. I ask once again for you to restrict personal attacks to the available private channel.
